The link between low income and low academic attainment is greater in the UK than almost any other developed nation. Children eligible for free school meals are less likely to get good GCSEs and go on to higher education. This makes it more likely they will struggle throughout their lives, widening social inequality. It’s a cycle that we’re determined to break.     

We work with thousands of brilliant teachers, schools, universities and partners in England and Wales and we are seeking a School Partnerships Lead with strong relationship management and communication skills for a pivotal role within the London North Local Area Team.     

As a School Partnerships Lead you will be responsible for developing and implementing strategies for school partnerships by increasing breadth of our school relationships through recruitment of new schools and connecting existing schools to the wider Teach First community. You will also ensure that our Participants are matched correctly in school placements while aligning the local area strategy and the Teach First vision.     

You will have great stakeholder management with experience in communicating to external and internal audiences to aid business development. You have excellent project management skills with exceptional customer service. You are proactive and have great attention to detail.    

Do you have fantastic relationship management skill and are looking to take their next step? If so then this is the right role for you.     

We know that employees flourish when they are empowered, so here at Teach First we operate an agile working environment based on trust and results.     

The day when no child’s future is limited by their background is coming, yet, there is still more to be done. Join us and help us ensure every child in the UK has a fair shot at achieving their ambitions.
